1 killed in French anti-terror sweep after attack on Jews
PARIS (AFP) - A man shot dead by French police on Saturday in a nationwide crackdown on terror suspects that made seven arrests was linked to an attack on a Jewish store last month, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said.
The man killed in an exchange of fire in Strasbourg was "a delinquent who had converted to radical Islam" and his fingerprints were found on the remains of a grenade thrown into the kosher grocery store in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles, Mr Molins told a press conference.
Mr Molins named him as Jeremy Sidney, 33, and said that like those arrested he was of French nationality.
He said the sweep had uncovered a list of Jewish associations, adding that "the inquiry will determine what were the next targets of this cell".
